Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

The Sewing Studio / Office Saga

After my office was painted, which I think was about 10 years ago, I put up white temporary paper shades on the window. They were ugly, but effective.  Now that I have a new window and I’m shuffling my space around, it’s time to do something about those window coverings.  My first thought was mini blinds. But at 93″ wide, with a center section of 44″ and no way to do an inside mount, another option was needed.

We spotted these sheers and snagged 2 sets. But when I got them up I knew I needed at least one more set, maybe 2.  So, back to the store I went only they had sold them all.  When I got home I put all of them over on one side and decided I needed 2 more sets and ordered them on-line.

Eventually I may decide I need to special order some blinds, but in the meantime I simply won’t pass through the room unless I’m dressed.

As for the furniture,  it is still a work in progress.  I need to put my large file cabinet on wheels so I can put it in the corner and have the various internet cables run under it. Also I need to switch sides for my work and personal computer so I can reach the phone while I’m working. When I switch the file cabinets I’ll move the lamp as well.

Oh, if you go back and look at what I was planning before, this is not where the desk was going to be.  But that was before realized I wasn’t going to be able to make just one file cabinet work. So, now the plan is to put the cutting table up against the window and set the sewing table galley style opposite of the desk.  Maybe.  I’ve got the desk about 5″ from the wall to accommodate the curtains and that 5″ is turning out to be critical with 2 chairs.  My sewing chair is too low for my desk and the desk chair is too high for the sewing machine. Add in that now my back is to the window and now I am back to the drawing board.

All I know for certain is that I am missing not being able to sew.
